“Inexpensive and Comfy”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

My second time staying at this hotel. Fast check-in and check-out.

Great location for ladies who know exactly what they want to do in Bangkok as this is located right at the busiest whoesale shopping area. You can wake up early and start shopping, go back to hotel to offload your stuff and continue to shop again till the shops closes in the evening. Then, you may choose to visit the massage parlours nearby and food is in abundance around this area.

This place may not be easy to locate for first timers but take a screenshot of the address in thai of google map and it will save you lots of trouble on navigation starting from the airport to asking locals when you are lost.

Rooms are spacious with King Size bed and I love their rain shower. Reminder to bring your own toothbrush and toothpaste as they do not provide this. However, you can get anything and everything from 7-11 nearby.

Location wise was great for shopping spree traveler. However I would suggest hotel booking to put direction like hotel vista express could be found in building four season international as during our search we wrongly directed to false alley. Receptionist was very helpful with understandable English speaking. Room was tidy but missing some lighting as I consider the room as pretty dark, could score more if I wasn't disappointed with the lighting.
Nevertheless, I would consider to go back if I ever travel Bangkok again.

The hotel is located just too near the infamous Platinum Wholesale mall. Great service from the doorstep right through check in until check out on our last day of stay. The staffs are very helpful and have great english proficiency. There are local stalls right outside of the hotel which we will not need worry about finding food or thirst quenches. The room is beyond expectation; new and clean and spacious, very comfortable especially returning from the hot weather and overload shopping.

Firstly..the taxi would try to act they know the streets and con your money
2ndly they try to dump u when they can't find the exact place
Always try to get them to use metering
The hotel rooms is too dim. No white lights only lamp it's horrible..
The roads are smelly. This hotel is gd for wholesale shoppers only..the wifi is ok only in the daytime.after 8pm the wifi is not gd anymore

Below are my honest and non-bias review of the hotel that I have stayed twice.
Both time I stayed in this hotel, I faced different problems:-

First time
- we requested for rooms side by side with my parents but was given only the same floor.
- my parents room does not have a strong signal of wifi in their rooms, constantly disconnected.
- the water heater in my parents room is not working.
- my parents rooms are significantly much smaller.

however, in my room, everything worked perfectly fine.

Second time
- we requested for extra pillow in room --- not given until we told the lobby staff again
- keycard has problem.
- no face towel after housekeeping came to pack. - after we reminded the staff, they immediately put in our rooms.

However, I will still continue to stay in this hotel as it is value for price and the location is really good (5minute walk to Platinum mall and wholesale shopping below hotel). It is a little gem in the crowded Pratunum. The staffs are really nice + helpful (you can ask them the estimate rates from area to area via taxi, so that you will know how much to pay) but might be a little slow paced, hence constant small reminders may be required.

Most importantly, rooms are nice and clean. Free Wifi and daily replenish of water!

Hopefully the 3rd time, I stay in Hotel Vista Express, there will be improvement to the small details. :)

Location was perfect, right at the heart of Pratunam shopping district but the search to find the hotel was tough at first as it was hidden in between streets and stalls! But the room was clean and tidy and staffs were friendly! My only concern was the toilet door that had faulty locks but overall, everything is perfect! The mall is located right at the lobby so you can start shopping right at the convenience of your hotel!

The actual room and lobby looks great different from the photos in the website. I would say 65% resemblance. Hotel is located in the middle of a clothing wholesale great for shopper who wants to buy tons of clothing. The signage of the hotel is difficult to find and not prominent. The initial room given was noisy due to the AC unit which is making unbearable humming noise. Requested for a change as the room power supply didnt work after inserting the key.
